Comic Battle Round 30: Electric Chair

The battle is SO ON. Look at all these entries!
Normally, the single panels and illustrations don’t count… but I’m totally stoked about the participation count from Free Comic Book Day. So I’ll let it slide, just this once… any future one panels and illustrations will be disqualified ;P

Did you get your free comics on comic book day? 😀
